Easy Peasy Recipe: Steamed Chicken With Vegetables

1. Chop vegetables/fruits of choice, and arrange them at bottom of bowl, with ginger slices where chicken will sit on.

2. Place marinated chicken (we used sesame oil, sea salt and pepper this time) on top of ginger and garnish with one piece of star anise. 

*If you prefer your vegetables not as soft, you can steam it for only 20 minutes (by steaming the chicken and vegetables separately, adding the vegetables at the last 20 minutes interval).

3. Steam for 35-40 minutes.

Serve hot with noodles or rice.

We very nearly roasted this dish earlier but the weather was scorching hot we decided to steam it instead. We would have omitted the sesame oil, ginger, wolfberries and star anise in the roast version. 

Bon appetit!

      Mum-on-the-go with limited cooking skills describes me best *nervous smile*

      Maybe I should really buy a new recipe book that is not written by Annabel Karmel *extra nervous smile*
